As the great Nelson Mandela said, “There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” Powerful words from a man who left an incredible legacy. They challenge you and I to...

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already, but we’re thrilled to celebrate our first anniversary in Calgary. To mark the occasion, we’re bringing The Rhapsody Institute with us, starting with Business Epics on November 10th and the first of many Catalyst Series...
I was able to put what I learned into action right away. Now I always start my presentation with an impactful question or statement that really catches people’s attention. This has helped me drive home my main points with the audience, so they leave my presentations remembering more of what I shared. I enjoyed the entire day. From the practical application of the skills to the healthy lunch menu, I can’t say enough about my first experience with a Rhapsody Accelerator.

I am so very grateful to Rhapsody Strategies for the excellent training. Eric Deschamps is an exceptional public speaker who really taught us so much. Everything about the day was great – the space, the pace, the people in the class, the lunch and breaks. Really it was first rate. I am feeling confident in my ability to deliver a compelling presentation now!
It’s been 7 days since we sat in your office for the 2015 Impact Accelerator… Once again, you guys changed the way we think! Thank you!

They get that the better you become the better they become… They’re compassionate and empathetic, but at the same time they are a driving force. So I’m very honoured to be part of this. I wish I would have done this five years ago… (See it on YouTube)
I’ve never seen anything like this before. I think that they have a huge amount to offer to the marketplace. Business owners can really tap an enormous amount of talent within Rhapsody. There are tremendous resources here and a lot of experience… This is a big deal. It’s really a big deal. (See it on YouTube)
I wanted to send a quick message of gratitude for spending the day with my team to help enhance our public speaking performance. I personally benefited from the session and was able to immediately put your teachings into action. Your preparation for the session was the key to such an engaging day. I had never worked with a trainer that took the time to research our goals and design a program that focused on each attendees personal development.
Great things to come… I really think they’re going to take Ottawa by storm with this Rhapsody concept and only make our business community stronger and better and more effective at communicating our message. (See it on YouTube)
Our experience with Eric is that he totally over delivers as a keynote speaker. We invited Eric speak to business owners for the Orleans Health & Wellness Expo. He remarkably engaged and energized the audience with his brilliance, humour and captivating talk. We were very impressed with Eric’s professionalism and integrity and we highly recommend him as a dynamic and top quality speaker within the business world. –

The most powerful part for the day was learning a simple and effective system for creating my presentations. I now have a road map to follow, which makes it easier and faster to put together an impactful talk. Eric has a way of creating a safe environment where even the most reluctant of presenters feels comfortable. I enjoyed being part of a group of people who had a wide range of speaking experience, from zero to 20+ years. The best part was being able to practice the skills throughout the day… Read more
